Roberto Accinelli, MD, a medical professor at Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia (UPCH), has been driven to help less fortunate Peruvians.Soon after receiving his medical degree, Dr. Accinelli embarked on a lifetime journey of improving the health of Peruvians, working with Cesar Villaran, MD, to establish the asthma clinic at the Hospital Nacional Cayetano Heredia (HNCH) in Lima before traveling to the high-altitude city of Tarma to complete a year of medical social service. While there, he met Felix Mayorca, MD, who was spearheading the region’s tuberculosis treatment program. “While working in Tarma, I fulfilled the concepts of Raul Leon-Barua, MD, a Peruvian gastroenterologist, who said, ‘For research we just need the eyes, hands, a paper, and a pencil,’ ” Dr. Accinelli says. “Our resources were limited, but we did what we could with what we had.”Following his residency, Dr. Accinelli was selected to head the tuberculosis program at UPCH. Since that time, he has devoted much of his life to improving access to treatment.
